Note: Your server must be able to support mod_rewrite.
To test, do the first part of the installation only (.htaccess)
and put in a url like this -> forum/test-t1.html
if it shows topic does not exist or shows the topic, then you may continue installing this mod.
If it doesn't work, you will have to setup your apache to work with mod_rewrite before installing this mod
What's new in this version:
- URLs now look like this : forum/myforum-f1.html forum/search-engine-friendly-topic-t1.html
- Older format urls now have a 301 redirect to preserve any previous pagerank.
- Now uses MOD Version Check
Note: even though it has been requested many times to remove accented characters, it causes problems for other languages, so it has been removed in this version… also new browsers (Safari Windows/Mac) are starting to support UTF-8 characters, so might as well stay on the cutting edge.
My Mod Roadmap: http://startrekguide.com/forum/f100-mod ... html#p8507
to upgrade from RC1-RC3 to RC4
Code: Select all
'U_LAST_POST' => $view_topic_url . '&p=' . $row['topic_last_post_id'] . '#p' . $row['topic_last_post_id'],
Code: Select all
'U_LAST_POST' => format_url($row['topic_title'], 'p' . $row['topic_last_post_id']),
And copy over the files from the zip replacing the old ones.
Make sure to download MOD Version Check so you will be able to see when an update is available.
